Session 2: (11:15-12:15 PM) A Magic Wand For Member Retention

Course Description: 

Did you know that the more times a member renews, the less it costs to keep them? It’s likely you know member renewals are important. The real question is, what can we actually do to raise the chances that a member will want to stick with your association for the long-haul? While we’d all love to wave a magic wand to improve retention, sadly they don’t exist. However, the next best thing (and its pretty darn close) – is all your data! While associations often have access to many data points about what their members want, few are using effective data strategies to create targeted retention campaigns. Knowing why members join, why they stay, why they leave and what they value most is a bit of magic that can be vital to a great retention strategy. The only way to get this type of granular information is through analytics.

Course Description: 

If you’ve ever tried to engage members or get them to act and it didn’t work, you’re not alone. The key is, don’t keep doing it and expect different results! In this interactive session, put on your scientist hat to explore experiments to you can do to determine what engagement strategies work.

Session 4: (2:30-3:30 PM) Test Drive Your Shiny New Membership Model

Course Description:

Content consumption is changing at a rapid pace. Social media, tech companies, and ‘end-of-the-alphabet’ generations are rewiring market demand. And while for some, the traditional association models, are still holding ground, there’s a keen awareness of the change ahead for organizations. Faltering membership numbers and increasing boomer retirements are pressuring association leaders to revitalize their legacy models and brand reputations for organizational preservation. But when do you know when your organization is ready and prepared for a tune-up? Join us as we explore the key indicators for membership remodeling and more diversified programming.
